Here are some brief details of the speakers that appeared at the 2011 conference.
Raffaella Barker, author of nine novels and contributor to the Evening Standard, Spectator and Elle, amongst others. She is also an experienced teacher of creative writing.
Simon Hall, crime writer and (appropriately enough) the BBC’s crime correspondent for the South West. He also narrates his own audio books.
Jane Holland, award-winning poet and novelist as well as being an ex professional snooker player. She hasn’t offered any lessons on the Earnley table, but I’m sure that’s just because we haven’t asked.
Catherine King, well known author of popular romantic novels set in 19th century Yorkshire. Catherine will be well known to a lot of regular attendees at SWC.
Kathy Gale, with over 20 years of book publishing experience including editorial, marketing and sales management. She should make for a fascinating Saturday afternoon speaker.
